Case contributed by Dr Vaite Tsing


Right flank pain for 2 days, limited history due to intellectual impairment

Patient Data

Age: 25 years
Gender: Male

Multiple bilateral renal angiomyolipomas. Large right retroperitoneal hemorrhage. Appearance suggestive of a pseudoaneurysm at the upper pole of the right kidney.

Case Discussion

This young man presented with a limited history due to intellectual impairment and suspected tuberous sclerosis. Haemodynamically-stable but in view of the suspected large pseudoaneurysm of the right upper renal pole, the decision was made to proceed to angioembolisation. He underwent successful embolization of the pseudoaneurysm with coils and a second large angiomyolipoma in the right lower pole was also selectively embolized with a 1:1 ethanol-Lipiodol mix and a coil.
